I am using discover bank on Mint. When mint downloads transactions for me, all I get is the transaction date, last 4 digits of the debit card used and the amount.

Transactions look like this: 0815 2425 # UNCATEGORIZED. If I want to categorize them, I have to do it manually, which seems to defeat the purpose of Mint. Not helpful, right? lol Any help?

Hello patrickbrooke,

I'm sorry that you're having trouble with transactions for Discover in Mint, I understand how inconvenient it is when things aren't labeled correctly.  I'm not sure what would cause this since it's not a known issue, so please open a ticket using the Contact Mint form so our support team can further investigate and assist.  Or you can reach our to our Chat team for live assistance during available hours.  They should be able to look into adjusting our naming algorithms for that bank.

Regards,
Jesse :man:

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
